Now, the FISA Applications of Carter W. Page been leaked, for whatever reason, as the Republican Party or the Devin Nunes Intelligence Committee in Congress to spin-the-news cycle again. The Russian Probe is on-going and the details of the connections to the Trump Campaign is coming out. Therefore, they need to advance it or force some sort of play. Who knows why now, after failing reports from the Congress in February 2018. That is totally in disregard to the Intelligence Community, who has been on the other spectrum considering the Russian interference with the Campaign of 2016.
The First thing the FISA Application from October 2016 and beyond is redacted as hell, but is still saying that he was an agent of a foreign power, the Russian Federation, where he gathered intelligence for that power. Page was targeted in recruitment by the Russian government to undermine and influence the outcome of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections.
What this document shows again and again, is that FBI together with other parts has been able to show enough documentation of possible conspiracy by Page to continue to wire-tap and monitor him for his activities for Russia. They have been able to collect enough information on Page to be able to renew and file the application through the court. Therefore, he has had enough conspiracy and connections for the state to continue to monitor him.
Because they been able to file and renew again and again. That proves that the FBI have been able to collect and show evidence for the need because of the activity that Page has been doing for the Russians as their agent. Therefore, weird that the Trump Campaign had him as Foreign Advisor during the campaigns.
If, the Republican party and the people behind the leak thought it was wise to leak a redacted FISA application, it was not. It has only proven that the for a long time the FBI has been able to produce enough evidence for renewal and to prove the need to monitor Page. Because the FBI follows the provisions of the law before applying for a FISA Application.
So, we can hope the leak backfires, this just proves that the Trump Campaign had no trouble to hire someone in the eye of the FBI. Just like Trump didn’t follow recommendation on Michael Flynn and his agent business abroad either. Therefore, let see how this plays out. Peace.
It might be possible that you didn’t believe he was the Manchurian Candidate, however after this Joint Conference in Helsinki, Finland this 16th July 2018, than you might believe it too. Who am I talking about, by all means Donald J. Trump, the United States President, he seems clearly compromised and looks like he is in the pocket of the Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. Since they can hold a secretive meeting for two hours and say whatever they like afterwards. There were no one else than two people translating between the parties and no one to monitor the event. Meaning, in the meeting they could be talking about their wives, their ex-girlfriends or even about the deals they have done in the past. Therefore, as the defensive President Trump was in the Joint Conference, it is hard to believe anything the liar says. However, he has always been apologetic over Putin and Russia. Today, it went to level of foolishness.
The key quotes of Trump foolishness is right here:
“TRUMP: So let me just say that we have two thoughts. You have groups that are wondering why the FBI never took the server. Why haven’t they taken the server? Why was the FBI told to leave the office of the Democratic National Committee? I’ve been wondering that I’ve been asking that for months and months and I’ve been tweeting it out and calling it out on social media. Where is the server? I want to know where is the server and what is the server saying? With that being said, all I can do is ask the question. My people came to me Dan Coats came to me and some others they said they think it’s Russia. I have President Putin. He just said it’s not Russia. I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be. But I really do want to see the server but I have I have confidence in both parties. I really believe that this will probably go on for a while but I don’t think it can go on without finding out what happened to the server. What happened to the servers of the Pakistani gentleman that worked on the DNC? Where are those servers? They’re missing. Where are they? What happened to Hillary Clinton’s emails? 33000 emails gone, just gone. I think in Russia they wouldn’t be gone so easily. I think it’s a disgrace that we can’t get Hillary Clinton’s thirty three thousand e-mails. So I have great confidence in my intelligence people but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today and what he did is an incredible offer he offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators, with respect to the 12 people. I think that’s an incredible offer. Thank you” (National Public Radio – ‘Transcript: Trump And Putin’s Joint Press Conference’ 16.07.2018, link: https://www.npr.org/2018/07/16/629462401/transcript-president-trump-and-russian-president-putins-joint-press-conference?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter ).
It is like he doesn’t trust the FBI, neither any other parts of his intelligence organizations, but if Putin says it isn’t so, it isn’t so. How blind or dumb is he? Trump is showing his ignorance and played ones. Thinking he can get away with this. Certainly, this should put people into fire in the United States. He shows how compromised he is. Not that I believe the Congress or Capitol Hill will do anything, because they have been helping this charade going for months. They have worked against the Russian Probe on the hill and also against the works of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Therefore, he might continue as he said nothing.
President Trump has really shown his golden nugget. I got Putin. Putin said so, therefore, I had to believe him. It is like he is oblivious about the transfers of information caught by the investigation, neither about the leaks and revelations that has been. The strong connections and the meeting between the Trump Campaign and Russians. Even the not secured meeting with former Ambassador Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. All of that should let the bell rings, still the Republican Party has done nothing or anything worth a damn.
Now that he speaks like this, the US should be shocked, but will they act upon it? I doubt it. Than they had done already. President Trump is the Manchurian Candidate and he trusts more the denial of Putin, than his intelligence organizations. You could wonder why?
Does Putin have the Pee Tape and the Golden Shower video from the Miss Universe days in Moscow?
Is that why Trump is accepting and is in the pocket of Putin?
Certainly, he has been to friendly and compromised, the US should be shocked of the way Trump has acted in public today. Peace.
As the case is proceeding on the Russian interference, today is another day in the proof of conspirators from Russia who directly interfered in the United States Presidential Elections of 2016. This as 12 more Russians are indicted. This is explaining connections to the hacking from two major sites, which was even in the headlines as they leaked vital information from the inside of the Democratic Party to vandalize the affair. They clearly succeeded.
These was operations done through Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff (“GRU”) who ordered and fixed the operation, this planned hacking and release of stolen document was deliberate activity to undermine the democratic efforts in the United States. They stole e-mails and document in the April 2016 from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), they did also steal from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and finally the Clinton Campaign too.
After stealing it, they planned how to release it in June 2016 as the launch of Presidential Campaigns and also in the finalization of the long campaign season into the polls. These document was released through DC Leaks and Guccifer 2.0, these are two pages where the hacked documents was released. What these indictments show, is that they have not touched on the stolen E-Mails from campaign manager John Podesta and the Clinton Campaign, which was released in the months ahead of the polls in 2016.
Therefore, Robert Mueller is showing that he has evidence of conspiracy towards 12 more individuals, also the GRU connections, which shows that the Kremlin wanted to interfere and did it directly. This is shown in combination of the previous indictments of Russians and the Internet Research Agency and connected “businesses”. These two filings of documents shows how sophisticated the activity was. These activities are with a clear mission to show the dark side of the party organization in the United States.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has pumped up the ante. Now it is on. As well as the cases going with Paul Manafort and the coming cases on Michael Flynn, George Papadopolous, Alex Van Der Zwaan, Richard Gates, Michael Cohen and the rest. There are certainly enough documentation and leads to go anywhere. As all of them have done certain things and far from everything has come to the surface.
There are more information to come, but when it has been this much evidence and connections directly to Kremlin by the FBI. You know their will be revealed even more, when the trials are starting. As of now, the cards are hold tight by the State Prosecutors. There will be more and more people involved. Who knows where this goes, but this is far from final. Peace.
“If you could read, you knew shit.” – Michael Moore
Yesterday, was an assault of information released concerning the Trump Tower Meeting the 9th June 2016, the infamous meeting about adoption, even if the Trump’s oldest son was awaiting information of conspiring dirt on Hillary Clinton, which they had to get. Since Trump later did proclaim that he would hold a Press Conference, where all information would be released. Therefore, the information coming out within the last 48 hours been much. I will give the gist that is important.
Because during the same time, there was another of these Financial Disclosures forms made by the President. This is significant, but also showing how blatantly distrustful we can be about them. Becuase suddenly there are omitted loans and funds connected to Trump’s Personal Lawyer Michael Cohen, they we’re not admitted on the 2015, 2016 or 2017, but suddenly added on the 2018. Therefore, the reasons for the IRS Tax Returns, because the OGE Financial Disclosures are just calculated to blow up the image and keep the rest at bay. That is evident since they are released now and not during the campaigns and neither in the first of the Presidency. Your naive if your thinking differently.
However, that is just the skeet skeet skeet, that follows this administration, because the President is not known for keeping his pinky in his pants. But there are bigger fishes to fry, than his infidelity. President Trump and his campaign has had so many connections and so many meetings with Russians, that it is hard to keep up. That even as the documents were released yesterday, the realization, that the final say will be what the Special Counsel Robert Mueller Indicts and Charges. As he has already charged plenty, 3 companies, and has 3 plea agreements. Therefore, the case is moving and the reality should hit the White House. As Paul Manafort case is moving on and will be put on trial. While Trump connected lawyer Alexander Van Der Zvaan is already behind bars. While Robert Gates, George Papadopolous and Michael Flynn is already working with the FBI. So the initial information will be there, with tiem and within the court documents.
So, whatever that was revealed yesterday through the interviews are vital, but they are also a side-show. To the narrative and case-building of Mueller. What was important from the Senate yesterday is this: ““Despite the short time frame they had to prepare it, the intelligence community did a very good job with the ICA,” said Vice Chairman Warner. “After a thorough review, our staff concluded that the ICA conclusions were accurate and on point. The Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated, and ordered by President Putin himself for the purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton. In order to protect our democracy from future threats, we must understand what happened in 2016. And while our Committee’s investigation remains ongoing, one thing is already abundantly clear – we have to do a better job in the future if we want to protect our elections from foreign interference.” (Richard Burr – ‘Senate Intel Completes Review of Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian Activities in the 2016 U.S. Elections’ 16.05.2018).
So the Republicans and Democrats in the Senate Intel Committee are directly saying it and countering the Devin Nunes inspired forged investigation in the House Intelligence Report, that came not to long ago. This is really showing how partisan and how far-fetched from reality the House Republicans are at this point. They are clearly obstructing the investigation and the possible breaches are damning. That the Republicans in the House are working in accord with the White House, while the Senate has been more independent. That is why they conclude in a different manner.
Like this part from the interviews released yesterday, Glenn Simpson Interview on the 22nd August 2017:
“In the early the very first weekend that I started boning up on Donald Trump, you know, I found various references to him having connections to Italian organized crime and later to a Russian organized crime figure named Felix Sater” (…) “I understand it, is that the Trump people were eager to accept intelligence from a foreign government about their political rivals and that is, you know, I would say, a form of interference. If you’re getting help from a foreign government and your help is intelligence, then the foreign government’s interfering. I mean, you know, I think that also of course, in retrospect we now know this was pretty right on target in terms on what it says” (…) “The alleged incident that’s described here is the one that he was referring to. As I say, I don’t have really any additional information beyond this except that — I mean, it’s probably in here somewhere actually, but it’s well known in intelligence circles that the Russians have cameras in all the luxury hotel rooms and there are memoirs written about this by former Russian intelligence agents I could quote you. So the problem of kompromat and kompromating is just endemic to east-west intelligence work”.
That is just Glenn Simpson from the Fusion GPS, the ones who hired Christopher Steele, who made the Golden Showers dossier. That has within Memo’s from Comey, shown how obsessed Trump has been about this. The reality, is with time less and less is questionable about the affairs and possible intelligence in the report, because the passages has been verified. That shows the bleak reality of it all.
What was vital from Donald J. Trump Junior, was that he had during his interview, the same defense line like Jeff Sessions, he couldn’t remember if he was eating, sleeping or screwing someone. Because he couldn’t remember anything. It is like he needs to get his mind checked and get his memory tested at a hospital, because no one with a working mind forgets these details. Your not clean slate and stupid. Pardon me, but I don’t believe a calculating man like Junior to be that.
However, that Donald J. Trump Junior said in his interview on the 7th September 2017:
“A. Potential information about an opponent. Q. Potential incriminating information on Hillary Clinton? A. Yes . Q. And what about the thing that say s “It is part of Russia and its government’ s support for Mr . Trump,” did you also love that? A. I don’t know. I don’t recall Q. Did you understand that that would be problematic? A. I didn’t think that listening to someone with information relevant to the fitness and character of a presidential candidate would be an isssue, no” (Donald J. Trump Junior, 07.09.2017).
So we can see, how the Trump Campaign was inconsiderate of their role and that Junior himself has no problems with collusion with Russians. As he just wanted to get incriminating information if possible. That the Russians had it, he didn’t mind and therefore, helped setting up the meeting with all the people that June day in 2016.
To follow another interview by the Senate, here is what was a key moment in the Irakly “Ike” Kaveladze interview: “So whoever I just mentioned, obviously all participants of the meeting, and a gentleman named Roman Beniaminov. He worked with Rob Goldstone. I called him on June 7 to should I continue or wait for a question? BY MR.FOSTER: Q. Please, please. A. Okay. And right after I received an ema il from Mr . Goldstone about three individuals we were going to be meeting with, I got a little bit puzzled because at that point o f time, all I knew about the meeting, that it’s going to be Magnitsky Act , and I was unclear why exactly these people are meeting with us. I was in two conversations prior to that with Mr . Agalarov. You know, my suggestion was to meet with attorneys of Mr. Trump because she’s an attorney, Ms.Veselnitskaya, and probably the proper level of communication with her. And so I called Roman because I knew he worked with Rob, and I asked him, ” Do you know anything about that meeting? ” And, “ Do you know anything about the fact that we’re going to be meeting with three top political electoral campaign representatives to discuss Magnitsky Act? ” And at that point of time, Roman told me that, as far as he heard, attorney had some negative information on Hillary Clinton”.
Therefore, the emailing with Trump Junior is verified by Ike and the main agenda, wasn’t the Russian adoption as later professed, but instead get dirt from foreign agents on the Clinton’s. If that shouldn’t be a sign of breach of trust and also foreign intelligence interference in an election. Nothing is, that even Kaveladze is saying. So, the ones inside the Trump Campaign knew this and certainly got enough out of it, to have the famous press conference.
Anatoli Samochornov said this during his interview on the 8th November 2017:
“I can ‘t speak for Ms . Veselnitskaya. know that she was expecting something else from the meeting, something bigger. She said, “This was it.” (Anatoli Samochornov, 08.11.2017).
So, there was specific plans for it, but if this trying to cover it up. As the interpreter didn’t recollect more either. There is a collect amnesia in the sense of this meeting and what was discussed, other than the adoption of Russians. Which all seems strange, considering the emails and phone calls before the actually meeting. It is like the participants take the public for fools.
Rinat Akhmetshin interview on the 14th November 2017:
“Q. And who led t he meeting? A. Trump, Jr., led the meeting. Q. So how did the meeting start?
A. With small talk. It started with small talk. You know, they invited us. There’ s like little chatter, like, okay, what a beautiful room, what a beautiful view. You know, just — then Ms.Veselnitskaya, prompted by me, congratulated them on this win in the primaries. And then Mr. Trump, Jr., said, ” So I believe you have some information for us.” (Rinat Akhmetshin, 14.11.2017).
Here prove the intent of the Trump Campaign, that one of the people in the room remembers that Junior was ready to continue the pattern from the emails before the setting up of the meeting. If this wasn’t important, if they didn’t have information on the Clinton Campaign, he wouldn’t love it and take it in. That because he wanted dirt and didn’t care if he colluded with a foreign force. He might say he doesn’t recollect, but other ones who was there remember certain aspects, that makes it all questionable.
Robert Goldstone Interview on December 15 2017:
“She talked about — I heard her talk I about names Browder, Ziff, and funding t o the DNC. .And I didn’t know of Browder, know of Ziffs. I had obviously heard of the DNC. So it didn’t — I was waiting, if there was some smoking gun, which is why I had been asked to do this, and I thought if t here was, there would be a reaction from somebody around the table. So I was really paying no attention until maybe somebody reacted. After a few minutes o f this labored presentation, Jared Kushner, who is sitting next to me, appeared somewhat agitated by this and said, I really have no idea what you’re talking about. Could you please focus a bit more and maybe just start again? And I recall that she began the presentation exactly where she had begun it last time, almost word f or word, which seemed, by his body language, to infuriate him even more “ (Robert Goldstone, 15.12.2017).
I look forward to the Court Documentation on the Trump Tower meetings and all the other possible places the Russian agents and actors meet with Trump Surrogates and the Trump Campaign. As so many of them has been in connection with them. As well as they hacking the Democratic Party, which they released online to destroy the Clinton Campaign. Which they did with full force. It was interesting leaks, that shown inside works inside an American Campaign and the team of Presidential campaigning, which we haven’t seen before. However, the way of getting that information was illegal and the leaks was done with well-planned machinery in favor of the other candidate. That just happen to be Donald J. Trump. His team was blessing that, and Trump did say, read WikiLeaks on the Campaign trail. So this cannot be forgotten in the big picture.
There are so many Russian connections, so many loose ties to this and hopefully it all we be revealed in the Mueller Probe. That is what I hope for, that he has the financial transaction that Trump has kept from the public. That the probe has the transcripts and the timeline of communications between all the Trump Campaign and Trump Surrogates, even before the meetings of Russians in the time before running as Presidential Candidate and also during. So, that all the ties can be connected and make sense. Which, with all the drip-drops are showing the intent. Now that Kushner got mad is out too. There are really more behind the meeting, than what the Trump Campaign has confessed, they even tried to keep hush about it for long too.
Therefore, when they have kept it as a secret, every single piece along the way, when the Trump Campaign and the Trump Organization haven’t revealed their true status. We know that something is up. Because they cannot be sincere about their holdings, their transactions or their meeting. Which is vital for trust. Nevertheless, hopefully the investigation will show all of it and the drip drops of the activity of the New York Gang will come to the main street and be revealed. Peace.
“Sometimes I tell what I know…. and sometimes I don’t” – Ben Matlock
Well, Mr. Matlock, 007 or Paul Manafort, the previous campaign manager for the Trump Campaign during 2016. Whose been indicted by the Special Counsel Robert Mueller. He and his attorneys has recently filed a complaint to the Courts, which was denied today. They we’re claiming the scope and the mandate of the Special Counsel was to free, he was overstepping and also not investigating within his jurisdiction. Today that got dismissed in court by the order of Judge Amy Berman Jackson.
What is striking is this defense of the Special Counsel against Manafort:
“The gravamen of Manafort’s motion is his contention that the Special Counsel has embarked on an unfettered and unsupervised investigation, and that the inquiry should have been cabined by a specific factual statement delivered by the Acting Attorney General at the outset. But the Acting Attorney General has stated publicly in sworn testimony that he did discuss the facts under investigation with the Special Counsel at the time of the appointment. Testimony of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, House Committee on the Judiciary, Hearing on Justice Department’s Investigation of Russia’s Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election (Dec. 13, 2017), Ex. B to Gov’t Opp. [Dkt. # 244-2] at 29. The notion that this formal passing of the baton included an investigation into Manafort is borne out by the fact that the FBI was taking significant investigative steps related to Manafort within a very short period of time after the Special Counsel was appointed” (Crim. Action No. 17-0201-01 (ABJ).
So it was not like there was some investigation of Manafort already, just like they knew about certain things about Carter Paige and Gen. Michael Flynn. Who both was monitored by the Security Agencies and Intelligence Agencies in United States. Not like they didn’t have information on them, as the state had allowed several times to follow and wire-tap Paige. That means, they could collect more information on his informal and direct connections. All of this means, that everyone in and around Trump could have given information. Vital ones that the CIA and FBI already knows about. That we have no idea about yet. But will be dropped publicly with time.
Manafort and his business with Russian Oligarchs and Ukrainians, will be addressed, the connections, the financial disputes and the possible money-laundering, will be put in place. Not just what that has been written in Court documents already. Because that is the only solutions and possible leaks there are from the Mueller Probe. Which shows how professional and sincere his drive is. Even as Paul Ryan and Devin Nunes trying to undermine his efforts, and the whole Department of Justice. Since they are waterboys for the President. Who doesn’t comply to rule of law, since they are sitting in Congress and currently the leader of the Judicial Committee, even as Nunes Committee have early stopped their investigation. While Mueller continues to follow the suspects and leads in the case.
It is like the whole Republican Party knows they are into something shady, but has tried to undermined it all along, together with the Conservative Media. Instead of thinking of the implications and possible breaches of their own sovereign state, that Kremlin and their agents can play them like pawns on the Chess-set. If the ones behind Iron-Curtain knew it would be this easy, they wouldn’t have spent so much on the arms-race in the past. Just kidding, but you get my gist.
Also maybe, Manafort should take a hike, since his buddy buddy Richard Gates has pleaded guilty, therefore, whatever Gates knew about Manafort business and transactions, Mueller already knows. That is why Manafort should not fight, but also consider his place. As Manafort has the papers and the dots to connect his activity, he wondered, he could just ask Gates. Who because of his agreement would kiss and tell. Therefore, no worry buddy, Mueller already knows!
What we learned today, is that the scope of Mueller is free and monitored by Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General. Therefore, he can follow the evidence and make cases as he sees fit. The Special Counsel has followed the orders and also his mandate, the jurisdiction is there. Therefore, Matlock was dismissed. Peace.
“A couple of very bad ones came out and it’s called pay-for-play and some of these were really, really bad — and illegal. If it’s true, it’s illegal. You’re paying and you’re getting things” – Donald J. Trump (August 2016)
Michael Cohen, the personal lawyer and attorney for the President Donald J. Trump is in a sea of trouble. If he ever thought he was in it, he is now, it isn’t enough that his hotel-room, his home and office was raided by the FBI, by agents sent by the Southern District of New York (SDNY). Therefore, the Special Counsel Robert Mueller are looking through the evidence and the findings, as the collecting of building a great case is going-on. Cohen and his clients should worry, that being Boidy, Hannity and Trump.
That is evident now, as the revelations are coming, the documentations are showing the reality of the dealing of the attorney. The personal attorney of Trump, Cohen has used his position as the closest partner of the President done business agreements to secure help for corporations, like AT&T, Columbus Nova & Novartis. All paid for him being their business consultant, however, what sort of insider deals he could offer them is questionable. If you ever wondered what money does in politics. This is the reason why you try to disconnect that. Since Cohen was paid by these companies to serve their interests. By being the middle-man to the President.
These deals was done early in the start of the Trump Administration, to secure their interests. None of these companies would have paid Cohen, his company Essential Consultants LLC or anything else for services, unless they would be rendered. This is clearly money under table to secure needed help and change from the government, if that was being Columbus Nova, whose used the connection to try to get Russian Sanctions gone, while AT&T wanted to lobby their merger deal with Time Warner. Clearly, the last one will be soured by this, but the Russian sanctions will be on standby, as this government are not wishing to follow a collective Congress to add on more sanctions on the Russian Federation.
However, you can wonder what the pharmacy company Novatis would get out of this, and if the big-pharmaceutical company would get anything out of hiring Cohen. Unless, it would to secure that the government wouldn’t stop the high prices and the lack of oversight, concerning the opioid crisis in the Republic. Then I would understand why the Administration has lacked any courage to find any real remedy, as the striking epidemic isn’t battled head-on.
Cohen, has been using a system that is well-known, that Trump himself attacked Clinton’s for, which is called pay-for-play. Where you pay for services and that gets delivered by someone as an elected official. This is what is now evident with the Trump Administration, as they have used Essential Consultation and Cohen to get deals and agreements to figure out ways to get their needed itch scratched. If that was a merger, lacking Russian sanctions or even keeping the opioid crisis at steady levels. Because of all of this is good for business. So Cohen and Trump get funds and the companies get possible vast fortunes by the political help.
That the AT&T calls it a big-mistake today, is just shambolic, they wouldn’t have disclosed this or said anything unless several investigations into the Presidency and his men wouldn’t have been a thing. That Cohen and Russian Probe is going on, that the Stormy Daniels are appearing and even the start of the fall of Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, which is also for some reason connected to Cohen. Who knows what sort of mess Cohen has not involved himself into.
Cohen is at a stormy sea, that is not only Avenatti who relentlessly finds ways to undress the king and his loyal servant. However, this will not go on forever, even as the madness of the problematic connections and inside dealings that Cohen has been involved in. We don’t know how much he has done and how much he taken from these companies. Not even knowing how much of the cut the President has taken. Because the greed of Trump is known and he has no scruples. That is why he has billed foundations and charity events at his Golf Courses to high-rates, because he only cares about the buck, not the people.
Cohen knows this, it is clearly, that the companies that has now been connected with Essential Consultant LLC will regret it. I called them the New York Gang when they came into power and don’t regret today, because the Trump Administration has been the most corrupt in modern history. The misuse of funds, the use of lobbyist for favors in the cabinet, by members, that even Representatives are making acts against using government planes for private travels. That shows the disregard of the use of public funds for private pleasure, that is if travel to Disney Land, Fort Knox or anywhere else, buying exclusive kitchen-wear or even securing all phone-calls in a specialized phone booths. This isn’t from a novel, but the reality of the Trump Administration. Therefore, that his personal lawyer and close associate Cohen would use the trick of “pay to play” isn’t that surprising, as the whole model of this government. Is that donors and PACs are steering the agenda, economically and also policy wise. Therefore, they are awaiting returns on their investment, in this instance their aren’t, but in others they have gotten points on their dollars.
Michael Cohen is in a massive storm, the sea is still vicious and if he will come easily to the harbor, that is unknown. What we do know, is that as the investigations goes on. His fate is uncertain. Cohen cannot say this is a easy wind and will go away quickly. That is far from true, because he had to have something profound in his capacity for the SDNY to raid his offices. They wouldn’t do that if he didn’t have something they couldn’t get otherwise.
Cohen, Trump will not save you, he will only save himself. You are in big, big, big trouble. In big cases running in different states for various of reasons. They will not just go away.
Even your boss said what you did is illegal, so you knew what your were doing. He did too and he accepted it. Because it was easy money. Peace.
